    I acquired these glasses bidding on eBay in about 2006-2007.
    I really didn't know much about them before I bought them but I liked the old look and etching. I contacted an overseas company for more information. This is the letter from them and the offer he made me.
    If you have any other information or a difference in opinion please feel free to comment.
    "These glasses are German. They are mid to
    2nd half of the 18th century. It's difficult putting a precise date on them
    date would be C 1770 /80. They were
    produced in the north of Germany in a place or general area called
    Lauenstein. They are used for drinking schnapps or the like from and the
    general German term for glasses of this type is 'stampern' or
    'zimmermansglas' or 'kutscherglas'; however these are a specific form known
    as 'watchmeister' or 'watchmaster' in English. I'm not quite sure where that
    term derives from and whether it is to do with clock makers or guards (the watch);I would think the latter. offered $350.00 for the pair"
